Reentry: Jaguar the Hutt, Dying with Elvis and Cinderella's French Open

For Mad Men recaps, we’ve been turning exclusively to Mark Lisanti for guidance and support, particularly after Sunday’s episode. There’s TV, there’s HBO, and then there’s “a few extremely well-compensated hours wearing a metal bikini while Jaguar the Hutt rattles your chains and bores you with his unimaginative, conflated mytho-historical sex fantasies.”

Under the Table

If you missed your shot at the Godfather of Soul's shades, don't despair—there's still time to get your paws on Tom Jones' billiard table.

On Thursday, London's The Fame Bureau is auctioning off the table owned and used by the Welsh pop star in the '60s and '70s. Made by Burroughes & Watts of London c. 1880, the mahogany masterpiece made a cameo on the record sleeve of Jones' 1971 LP *She's A Lady* and is expected to fetch $100,000 - $150,000. Also on offer: Jimi Hendrix's first burnt guitar, a 1967 Fender Stratocaster, which could go for as much as $1 million; the Bechstein Grand piano used by the Beatles to record *Hey Jude* in 1968, est. $600,000 - $800,000, and a slew of other less expensive but equally entrancing lots.

Kempt Man of the Hour: Andre 3000

*Photographed by our fearless lensman, Patrick McMullan.*

We have always regarded idiosyncratic impresario Andre 3000 (née Andre Benjamin) as one of the most stylish men in modern music. A fitting heir to Jimi Hendrix in many ways, it's felicitous that Benjamin (who has several acting credits to his name) has long had a Hendrix biopic in the works. Now he's branching out into fashion with his own line called Benjamin Bixby, inspired by 1930s football players.
